Product overview
VITEL 2200B.F is a thermoplastic, high molecular weight, aromatic, linear saturated polyester resin. It is a hard resinous amorphous polymer exhibiting high tensile and low elongation with superior scuff resistance. This resin finds specialised use either alone or modified in applications where high cohesive strength is of prime importance.
Available sizes
BAGS 25 KG/P24
Key Benefits - Can be used either alone of formulated
- Superior abrasive resistance
- Non-blocking coating up to 70°C
Applications VITEL 2200B.F can be used on all dry laminating machines with smooth or rotogravure rollers.
Applications Weight At least 2 g/m² dry. Optimum adhesion is obtained with an application weight of approx. 3 g/m². For aggressive requirements, the coating weight needs to be increased to 4 g/m2 or higher.
Dilution Dilution may be done with PU grades (< 0.1 % H2O-content) of ethyl acetate, acetone MEK or a mixture of these solvents. The adhesive system should be processed at a solids content of approx. 20 - 23% when applied via gravure. Ideal coating viscosity is between 75 – 115 cps.
Drying Drying conditions must be adjusted to substrate, application weight and line speed in order to avoid the retention of solvents. The dried and fully cured adhesive film will be transparent and neutral in odour.

Pot Life VITEL 2200B.F in solution has a very good pot life stability. If container well sealed solution will keep for at least 6 months at room temperature storage. When used in conjunction with curative, pot life will vary but not recommended to hold reactive solution more than 8 hours before application.

Range Of Application VITEL 2200B.F can be used in heat seal coating applications providing a non-blocking surface. Major applications include pigment binder for inks, primer or clear top coatings. It is most frequently applied from solution, solvent selection is important. It is soluble in ethyl acetate or toluene, methyl ethyl ketone, methyl ethyl ketone/toluene blends, cyclic ethers, chlorinated or stronger solvents. When used via extrusion, the resin must be dried first.

Shelf Life

Approx. 12 months when resin is stored in originally closed containers at temperatures between 5 and 35°C.

Like all synthetic resins, VITEL 2200B.F can retain or develop static charge due to its handling. Precautions against a static discharge should be taken particularly in areas where solvent vapours exist. Otherwise, there are no special precautions necessary in handling this resin. Under typical ambient conditions, VITEL 2200B.F is an inert material. However, storage of this resin should be below its glass transition temperature so that blocking of the resin does not occur.

The material safety data sheet (MSDS) should be consulted for information before use. Refer to the technical bulletin “Safe Handling of VITEL Resins” for further information on handling and storage.
